Popping noise from head unit

I put in a used head unit in my car recently. The install went fine and hooked up two 12" woofers in back. The radio and cd player sounds excellent.

My only problem is when I switch radio stations or switch between the cd player and the radio, I hear a loud popping noise in the speakers. Its only a real quick pop but its loud and kind of annoying. I dont even like listening to the radio because of it. It also makes the noise once the volume is turned all the way down to zero.

Is it a bad ground?

Thanks for any help

Jeremy
